    Super easy, super delicious! Sometimes I don't have spinach on hand so I'll make it without and it still tastes good. But I do prefer it with the spinach. Sprinkle with a little parmesan cheese to jazz it up a bit.

    This hearty vegetable soup is not only very delicious but also low in calories. My daughter was impressed with the flavour and asked me for the recipe. I would rate this recipe 5 stars.

    This soup is really really good! One could say mmmm, mmmm, good! It is filling, easy to make and freezes well. I freeze it in small containers so I can take them to work.
